How do I store crustless pumpkin pie?

To store your crustless pumpkin pie, cover pie in plastic wrap or tin foil and refrigerate it for best storage. Eat within a week (if it lasts that long!).


What can I substitute if I don’t have evaporated milk?

If you don’t have evaporated milk you can substitute cream or half and half for the evaporated milk. Evaporated milk is normally in the baking aisle near sweetened condensed milk, not in the refrigerated dairy section.

What can I do to make this crustless pumpkin pie dairy-free?

You can substitute canned coconut milk for the evaporated milk to make this recipe dairy-free! Just be sure to give the can a good stir or shake so the solids can get distributed before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. Canned coconut milk is normally located in the Asian cuisine aisle. I like Thai Kitchen brand the best! You can also use Carnation Almond Cooking Milk or Carnation Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk which should be located with regular evaporated milk in the baking aisle or in the special dietary needs section.

Can I make this a regular pumpkin pie with a crust?

Of course!! For some eating a pie without the crust is unthinkable. And that’s okay! You can still enjoy the delicious filling in your favorite pie crust if you want. Simply pour the pumpkin mixture into any unbaked pie shell and bake as directed in the recipe. If you are looking for an amazing pie crust recipe to put this pumpkin pie filling in you can use my Amish pie crust recipe found in this Dutch Apple Pie recipe or I am always a fan of The Pioneer Woman’s baking recipes!

I hope you enjoy making and eating this delicious Thanksgiving dessert! I’ve also heard crustless pumpkin pie called pumpkin pudding or pumpkin custard! It is technically more of a custard thanks to the eggs. (Custards are generally thickened with eggs and puddings are thickened with cornstarch.)

Any way you name it this healthy Thanksgiving dessert will be a for sure winner at your holiday gathering! Collect your spices, pumpkin, and whipped cream and make this delicious crustless pie ASAP!
